Danny and Anna's Round The World Trip 2005 travel blog

The big fish at Gore

Lake Te Anau and its dramatic backdrop

Not a bad view

We left Dunedin to embark on the drive across the south island to our next port of call Te Anau (pronounced Tay-Arn-Ow).

Anna was on driving duty today, which allowed me to take in more of the scenery and read up on what to expect in Fiordland. Our route westwards took in a few small towns, lots of hills and fields and as we aproached Te Anau, looming snow capped mountains.

Te Anau is the gateway to Fiordland, with Milford Sound two hours north and the mighty fiords just to the west. As soon as we arrived at the hostel we booked onto an overnight cruise which travels around Doubtful Sound and then headed off for a 3 hour tramp on the renowned Kepler Track. The views across the lake are from Brod Bay our stop on the walk.
